China’s Beijing orders more Covid tests as cases mount before Olympics

The local government in China’s capital has ordered more Covid-19 tests as the city continues to report new local cases, less than two weeks before the start of the Winter Olympic Games, Reuters reports.

It is pertinent to note that Fengtai district will organise nucleic acid tests for Covid-19 for all of its residents today, district health authorities said in a statement.

China had urged people to wear masks and gloves when opening mail, especially from abroad, after authorities suggested the first case of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus found in Beijing could have arrived via a package from Canada.
